Jonathan D. Grizzell, a 39-year-old Kingston man, is accused of setting his house on fire and trying to file a false insurance claim.
He was indicted by the Roane County grand jury last month on charges of arson and attempted insurance fraud.
He declined to comment on the charges when contacted late last week.
“You need to speak with my attorney,” he said.
The Kingston Fire Department responded to a fire at Grizzell’s 1511 Kathy Circle residence on Oct. 5, 2016.
